At Latinas Contra Cancer we are building a community of thrivers through our monthly support groups and regular community events encouraging self-care and healthy lifestyle for thrivers and their families. We hold a space for our community that is welcoming and appreciative of our culture and language.

Join Más Allá Del Estrés, a group that comes together to learn more tools like mindfulness and identifying symptoms of stress to help reduce worry, anxiety, depression, and problems with sleep.
